ALBANY

     That were the most if he should
  husband you.

ALBANY

He’d really be your proxy if he married you.

REGAN

Jesters do oft prove prophets.

REGAN

Don’t joke, it might come true.

GONERIL

     Holla, holla!
That eye that told you so looked but asquint.

GONERIL

Whoa, whoa! You’re so infatuated with him that you’re hallucinating.

REGAN

75Lady, I am not well, else I should answer
From a full-flowing stomach.
(to EDMUND)     General,
Take thou my soldiers, prisoners, patrimony.
Dispose of them, of me. The walls is thine.
80Witness the world that I create thee here
My lord and master.

REGAN

Hey, lady, if I weren’t feeling a little sick, I’d give you a piece of my mind. (to EDMUND) General, take my soldiers, my prisoners, my whole inheritance, and do as you like with them. I surrender myself to your good judgment. Let the whole world see that I hereby make you my lord and master.

GONERIL

   Mean you to enjoy him then?

GONERIL

Are you trying to sleep with him?

ALBANY

The let-alone lies not in your good will.

ALBANY

(to GONERIL) It’s not up to you to say “Yes” or “No.”

EDMUND

Nor in thine, lord.

EDMUND

Nor is it up to you, my lord.

ALBANY

   Half-blooded fellow, yes.

ALBANY

Yes it is, you half-blood.

REGAN

(to EDMUND) Let the drum strike and prove my title thine.

REGAN

(to EDMUND) Let the drums beat. Prove your right to me by defeating any challenger.

ALBANY

85Stay yet. Hear reason.—Edmund, I arrest thee
On capital treason, and in thine attaint
This gilded serpent.(indicates GONERIL)
(to REGAN) For your claim, fair sister,
I bar it in the interest of my wife.
90'Tis she is subcontracted to this lord.
And I, her husband, contradict your banns.
If you will marry, make your loves to me,
My lady is bespoke.

ALBANY

Hang on a second. Listen to me.—Edmund, you’re under arrest for capital treason. Along with you, your co-conspirator, this snake of a woman. (points at GONERIL. Then, speaking to REGAN) My dear sister-in-law, I veto your marriage announcement for the benefit of my wife, who is already engaged to Edmund. So if you want to get married, you’ll have to woo me. My wife’s already spoken for.
